The service was slow, but once we got our food it was good. We sent back our first bottle of Merlot because it tasted a little off. Upon getting the second bottle, a Cab, it was a little off as well. We finally decided it must have been that the bottles were not stored properly for the heat conditions. Park... More

Not every restaurant stays open late for dinner. We were driving around and my brother found this in his Yelp app. The prices were reasonable and the food was delicious. It was just after 8pm when we stopped here. There were two other families in the restaurant and the service was friendly. As with all restaurants in PR, the wait... More

The view from their patio is absolutely stunning and the food is wonderful! We loved the sangria (try the passionfruit!) and we're still talking about the skirt steak tapas. The seafood paella was a little too fishy for me, but my husband loved it. Definitely get a meal here while you're in Fajardo.

We were a group of 6. The server Maria was very kind and attentive, even the owner came by to meet us and let us know about the special drinks, plates and the homemade spicy sauces . The papatas bravas, mahi mahi, paella, lobsters mofongo and the desserts were delightful. Very good experience, highly recommended.

The restaurant is not far from El Conquistador, just minutes down the road. You can park in parking lot on the same side as the restaurant. The atmosphere was warm and well lit. They had a balcony with tables and we chose to sit outside. The restaurant is family friendly and there was a family, next to us celebrating a... More

The title says it all, not enough personnel to attend the customers. If you are willing to wait over an hour for the food then go and enjoy some good food.

One of the best meals we had in Puerto Rico. From the mojitos and sangria to wonderful array of freshly prepared tapas, we enjoyed many courses of local seafood, spicy beef and chicken, mofungo, and savory filled pastry, all delicious and artistically prepared. Our server and host, Samuel, could not have been more patient, informative, and helpful. The cooks really... More

It's unfortunate that this restaurant once charming and filled with delightful tapas has lost it's way. Last night I ordered the Mahi mahi and it was so tough and flavor...LESS that I had to send it back. The chef told me that he would prepare it again to my liking...After about a 20 minute wait and after my other guests... More

While in Fajardo PR celebrating a special birth-year with my best gal pals, we stumbled upon Ole'lelolai restaurant, planning on getting takeout. As soon as we were seated at a table with a glass of wine & a beautiful menu to chose from, a view that was spectacular of the harbor at sunset, we knew we were staying for dinner.... More
